ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Art in Tanzania

Summary

Art in Tanzania and its partners work with Tanzanian corporate and government institutions to tackle Corporate Social Responsibility issues. These topics also include actions against climate change.

Details

Corporate social responsibility is well implemented and introduced in school curriculums and public advocacy programs in the Western world.

The Tanzanian public does not know corporate social responsibility. Issues. As a result, corporate policies commonly don't consider social responsibility issues seriously.

At the same time, Tanzania is one country where climate change strongly affects the agriculture-based economy. But, in fairness, many people do not understand climate change issues either.

This program aims to educate schools and the public about social responsibility and deliver the message with the help of the Tanzanian business community.

We currently work with entities such as Dar es Salaam University, TWIGA Cement, Airtel, PVC, NBC Bank, and Coca-Cola, extending the program further. The field operations include working in a tree nursery and partaking in planting operations.

This program has a cross-cutting focus where students of different professions can attend and work together.

Academic-level team leaders supervise your internship daily. In addition, we monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program.

The internship outcome is to learn to use your studies and experience to work in a developing country's conditions.

We can take students in all year round as all programs are ongoing. Your placement is tailored to your background, experience, and interests to empower your daily work with the community.
